I have been a SF member for probably longer than most. Have not used it much lately but want to second the comments made by those previously. I work for a software company that has 97% customer satisfaction as well as customer retention. That is unheard of in the industry. All of our enhancements are customer driven. Nothing is added or subtracted without the incredible input from our users. After thinking of this, what is your agenda? Do you even have a plan for this site? Why would you even waste time on a new UI unless it was requested by your users. I have not seen anyone complain? I seems as though this site is just a hobby for few coders that don't care about their customers, growing it or taking it to the next level. I am still amazed you chose to take away the backtesting which was the top feature most on the site used. Good luck with SF as you have a lot to learn about listening and taking care of your customers. Hopefully it is not too late for those that remain!

Once again a complete waste of storage space for Stock Fetcher on an incoherent post that nobody gets any value due to it being unreadable. I finally figured it out! Optionplayer is actually a teenager and he thinks he is texting! My teenage son used to do this but I even make him use correct English now. Stop wasting our time with kindergarten writing and grow up! It does not take any longer to do it right!

Roger, I have to agree with Klynn55. We have all tried to take the time over the years to decipher your posts - most to no avail. I know you are not zany as I have spoke to you personally. I have also seen you write at times very coherently. It seems as though you are trying to figure out whether to make money by having people purchase your trading systems or by trading? You spend so much time posting stuff that makes no sense to most people. I believe you may have some great system but you never post enough info to benefit anyone. So why don't you make today the day you either write in English with punctuation and post real information that benefits us all, or just move to a subscription model your followers may use? I have never understood why you don't post actual recommendations before the close ( or after hours) so that others can act on them? If you are already in the position, it would only benefit you financially to do this? Let's make today a new day for Optionplayer and all on this forum!

Just a follow up, I am not touting IB but just trying to help others make an informed decision for what might work best. I used to keep all the printed and mailed trade execution statements and then spent hours or days trying to reconcile all my trades for tax time. With IB, I just click a link and the 1099-B form prints fully completed. I just hand it to my accountant and she attaches it to my return. Saves me also on tax prep fees as she used to have to manually enter them all. IB also lets you run customized reports on basically any category for any period of time. I use this to review prior winners and losers and also easily calculate my YTD return.

I have used Interactive Brokers for about 3 years. I switched because they offer the ability to trade multiple accounts (up to 10) under one log-in. It is called their Advisor Account. I trade my cash, IRA's and a few other accounts. I switched from E*Trade and did not dislike them but hated logging into each account to make trades and paying higher commissions to make smaller trades in each account. With IB it does not matter how many accounts the shares go into, the price is just based on number of shares. Price is .005 per share. I have found they are very inexpensive especially for lower share quantity trades and for options. Executions are unbelievable as I am often executed at better prices if I have to use a Market Order. The interface is completely customizable and it can take some time to get it to your liking. Once done though it is great. One other item that is awesome is for taxes you download the tax form and it is complete with all your trades and profit / loss. This used to take me hours to do this manually with E*Trade. My only negative I can think of is that for large trade sizes it can actually cost more in commissions than some others but I find the other benefits certainly offset it.

Did anyone bother to backtest this filter? Using only SSO long for example and assuming that it crossed RSI(2) 50 from below yields the following results for the last two years. Exit was just the reverse with entries/exits at the next open. Not what I consider to be an accurate filter especially since the market has rallied substantially higher.

Test started on 2011-04-05 ended on 2013-04-05, covering 502 days
Filter used:
SSO Test (saved filter))
